Well the time has come I have officially started working on the runner. I got the frame all cut off and the new frame started. I also started getting the housing cleaned up and ready for the e locker. I originally was going to run a stock mini axle with the 4wu three link kit because i wanted to retain all toyota components. But living in az the only housing i could find were junk and after spending tons of time and to much money on 3 just mini housing I had to call Brian at 4wu and beg him to swap out the axle side brackets and order me a diamond front axle, which he tried telling me to do in the first place but I was dumb and told him I wouldn't need a diamond housing and I was on a budget. So Brian without any hesitation told me it would not be a problem and to just send back what I have. He is currently building my diamond axle side brackets and also have a diamond front housing being built. But anyway here are some pics I'm going to get back to work on the truck now before I go back to work I've been on night shift for the last 5 months and I have 2 more nights to go before I get back on day shift and ill be able to work on this truck more conveniently.







Threw a couple of pics of the motor mounts in there also they should turn out nice.

take a little time to post some updates not to much yet as im waiting for parts and it sucks.

waiting delivery on:
lug studs
fror tacoma brake kit
fox 2.5 16 coilovers
bumpstop cans


i need to drill my hi steer arms out for my steering but no one in town will do it so i may have to do it at work Thursday or Friday.

the next three days im going to try and build my pitman arm, get my box mounted, finish the motor mounts, start the trans mount, and hopefully start building my engine cage as long as mt shocks show up.

its looking like i will be having about 6-7" of up travel at about 24.5-25" of ride height and 35's not setting these numbers in stone as the rear-end isn't setup yet but i hope it stays under 26 frame height. have my wheel base set at 105" also.







had to notch the frame for the pan bar will also ahve to notch for the steering as well



pan clearance



pan i refuse to spend $200 on a pan lol so ill give this a shot. it was fun to build.

I moved my upper mount flush to the diff side and with a little grinding fits just right clears about 1/8". Not much more progress I wasn't feeling to well on my days off, but I did start to mount my shocks I feel like the shock mounting is going ot be a nightmare but i will just have to get creative. I did finally get my hi steer arms drilled at work today and I did manage to get my pitman arm built i think it turned out nice.

pic if the pit

well on my two days off I made some major head way on the truck, oil pan is welded and leak tested, pickup tube and splash guard are fitted to new pan, re made my pass. motor mount to clear the axle, mocked up my steering box (still working on that) trying to get as much up travel as I can I'm going to move my upper link AGAIN to hopefully its final resting place, still need to notch frame to clear steering, FINALLY took the time to mount my trans and t-case i think it actually turned out really nice.

anyhow i took some better pics tonight shes going to be a big bitch.


My cross member connects to the back side of each link bracket over the top of the exhaust down and around the rear of the t-case and then you can see how I ran the trans mount off where the factory mount is and braced it with the two large lower trans bolts. It was pretty dark under there when I tacked the tabs don't judge they will come back off so I can weld them better.

front view


kinda getting engine cage ideas tubes will be coming through the hood to the bumper.



pics are about 5" up travel and 24" to bottom of frame under the door

and my over stuffed garage with the race truck patiently awaiting for her return to center of attention.
